Japanese artist Riusuke Fukahori’s lifelike art is on display in New York.
Japanese artist Riusuke Fukahori keeps live goldfish in his studio. They serve as inspiration for his art and the “constant need to clean the fish tanks also informs Fukahori’s broader sense of environmental consciousness – seeing the fish as not unlike people in the soiling of our own air/water and the potentially deadly consequences if left unchecked.”

He takes that broader sense of environmental consciousness and inspiration and creates works of art that look very lifelike. His art is created layer by layer using acrylics and resin. Take a look:

Fukahori’s work, called Goldfish Salvation, is on exhibit at Joshua Liner Gallery in New York. The exhibit closes on December 19.
